Atlas Equator MKIII 6N Analogue Interconnect
Atlas Cables understands the meaning of uncompromising performance. Is the ubiquitous Atlas Equator Asymmetrical the best interconnect on the market? It sure is at it's price!
Previous versions of this cable have been awarded the What Hi Fi best stereo interconnect of 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2008.
Following their research and development programme, the Equator is fitting with Atlas' entirely new Integra plug. The new improvement in sound quality achieved with the new Atlas non magnetic plug is outstanding.
The plug benefits from a solder free, cold weld interface between the 99.9999% pure copper co-axial stranded conductors and the plug for both the going and return signals., being free of solder, another barrier to the free-flow of the signal has been removed.
The Integra plug employs two conjugate brackets; these brackets grip the cable without compressing it. Compressing a coaxial causes the cable to alter its impedance from the 75 Ohms thereby causing deletions. In a digital interface the impedance can drop to some 40 Ohms which causes reflections and jitter. The Integra plug simply lets more information through.
Finally the Equator Integra is provided with a unique serial number and a five year guarantee. The guarantee may be registered by post or by filling out the form at www.atlascables.com Buyers may be confident they've purchased a genuine Atlas cable, researched, developed and produced in Scotland and made from the finest materials available.
A consistent winner, the improved Equator Integra is obviously the entry level audio interconnect for discerning music lovers. Like all Atlas interconnects, it provides a huge sound-stage together with a smooth delivery. It avoids the over bright and irritating sound so often a feature of similarly priced interconnects. Rather in common with all Atlas interconnects, irrespective of price, it offers the listener a sophisticated and relaxing sound with no artificial highs or lows.
